Italy is a destination on many traveler’s bucket lists. We found a decent, long weekend deal between Los Angeles and the Eternal City — in premium economy!

Leave Thursday, March 19 and arrive Friday afternoon March 20. You have Friday night, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday to explore Rome!

It costs $1520.35 and yields 18,631 MQM. The LAX to Detroit hop is in Delta Comfort+ (Medallions have a shot at first class upgrades). The DTW to Amsterdam ride is in Delta Premium Select aboard an A350 (read Rene’s review). Then you take an Alitalia A321 to Rome.

You’ll return home Monday, March 23. Take Alitalia to Paris before Delta Premium Select from CDG to LAX.
